presidential nominee paul ryan is speaking right now at a cam ppaign rallyn derry. paul ryan firing up the crowd. what's he saying? >> he is talking about the economy, talking about the deficit, talking about four years of president obama would be detrimental to the country. it's pretty plain and simple. president obama and republican nominee mitt romney are laying low today because they're getting ready to prepare for the debate, so it's the number 2s on the campaign trail. right behind me here, here's paul ryan stumping here in new hampshire, a crucial battleground state. when he's done here, he goes to ohio later today. another very big important battleground state. and that's the whole idea here, as the president and mitt romney get ready for the debate. paul ryan and vice president joe biden are on the campaign trail. specific new hampshire. the race here is kind of close. the most recent poll shows president obama with a five-point advantage over mitt romney. definitely a very close contest here in new hampshire. this is a state that may not know paul ryan very well, but knows mi
't get dropped by their insurance company. >> romney and his running mate paul ryan promise to cap medical insurance, cap mcut medicate by $810 billion over the next ten years. give states more control over their medicaid funds, overhaul medicare. >> this financial support system is designed to guarantee that seniors can always afford medicare coverage, no exceptions. >> now, there's some major differences between the candidate as you see there, but perhaps one of the biggest splits is over medicate. currently most people understand medicaid to be a safety net for the poor, but what it actually covers is poor families with children, pregnant women, people with disabilities, as well as senior citizens. there's a lot there. joaned me from new york is andrew ruben. he also oversees 1,400 doctors at the new york medical center. i hope i got that right you and i talked about this before. medicate cove-- medicare covers many. >> there are millions of americans in the medicare program fwlus are 9 million medicare beneficiaries, 9 million who are also eligible for medicaid. they're called
on the campaign trail, erick, paul ryan, the republican vice presidential nominee, he's making some serious accusations against joe biden. but joe biden is responding. listen to what joe biden said today. >> for the previous eight years all the policies that congressman ryan voted for and governor romney said he supported, all those policies in a mere eight years, they doubled the national debt. they doubled the national debt from what they inherited in 2001. >> he's right on that because the debt was about $5 trillion when president bush took office, more than $10 trillion when he left office. i think he's referring to the two tax cuts that weren't paid for, the precipitation drug benefits that weren't paid for, two wars, iraq and afghanistan that weren't paid for that caused so much, at least 80% or 90% of that debt. >> well, you know, i actually don't think the wars caused added as much, but a lot of stuff did. here's a fact as well, yes, president bush left office with a double national debt. here's another fact the democrats don't like. president obama has added more to the national de
's happening. >> good to be here! is he going to come out, ryan, and say, look, there you go. that famous there you go again. there's another lie or no? >> i think it's unpredictable. i'm not sure if the debate is the right place to do it. after the paul ryan speech, you have the obama campaign referring to the lies in paul ryan's speech and that's echoed by president obama's allies in the media. when you don't have the romney campaign's response robustly. for example, president obama has been running ads claiming that mitt romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of a assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. also puts harvey rosen, you can also generate enough growth to avoid a middle class tax increase. there are a loft credible folks saying something else. it's a fact he's going to raise middle class tax. >> the obama campaign, david plouffe is a chris christie of the campaign saying their campaign is built on a tripod of lies and the presid
. >> reporter: romney and his runningmate paul ryan cap malpractice insurance, cut made by $810 billion over the next ten years, give states more control over their medicaid funds. overhaul medicare. the overhaul, people now younger than 55. when they reach retirement will have the option of getting a voucher to purchase private insurance or they could stick with traditional medicare. >> this financial support system is designed to guarantee that seniors can always afford medicare coverage, no exceptions. >> reporter: while the repeal of obama care would get rid of the prescription drug benefit to seniors, romney doesn't want to take out all of the loss provisions. >> we have to make sure that people who have pre-existing conditions are able to get insured and that folks that don't get sick don't get dropped by their insurance company. >> reporter: the president of the american action forum. he doesn't support the current health care law. >> the amount we spend on medicare has to be cap aed, they just disagree on how to get there. romney and ryan says what we're going to do is give the money
class that has been buried -- in his words, buried, the last four years. paul ryan at a campaign event in iowa just a few moments ago seized on those comments and said vice president biden said that the middle class has been buried. we agree. he goes onto say that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states, wolf. i have a strong sense this will be brought up at tomorrow night's debate, wolf. >> we'll have a lot more on what joe biden has just said and the very tough reaction coming in from the romney campaign. gloria borger is standing by on that front. both of these campaigns are bringing major surrogates to denver to appear in the so-called spin room after the debate tomorrow night. what are you learning about the romney campaign's people who are coming in? >> reporter: wolf, it's probably no surprise rob portman, mitt romney's chief sparring partner playing barack obama in the debate, he'll be in the spin room. but we've also learned that marco rubio, the rising star, senator from florida who had a prominent role at the republican c
ryan and seemed ready to engage on the big stuff. medicare, entitlements, tax reform, national solvency, a restructured welfare state. he has since retreated to the small and safe and when you're behind, how far, safe is fatal. >> i don't think so. i think he has been running a very vigorous campaign. i think most people approve of his selection of paul ryan. it's tough. it's very difficult. >> why is he behind? >> i think he is behind because americans probably feel better than they did before jobs and the economy even though it's terrible. it's sort of the -- >> right track, wrong track? that's interesting. tell me. just stretch that out a little bit. >> i think americans see a glimmer of hope. there is slight improvement in the economy, and i think that some people, for example, a state like ohio, battleground state, thanks in my view to the governor that the unemployment is down. that's true in some of the others. i understand how tough this campaign is. i do believe that media coverage has something to do with it. but that is what it is. i think most americans will still be making
a sense, a rising sense that the appointment of paul ryan as the vp pick has turned out to be a big mistake, that he should have chosen -- i had nate silver on last night who had wonderful facts and figures but said he had gone with marco rubio or something and gone for the latino vote, that could have been a demographic he could have pulled in he didn't otherwise have. with paul ryan, it just doesn't seem to be working. he brought him in to win the battle over the economy argument and ever since that happened, that appointment happened, it's gone the other way on the economy. he's been losing that argument. what do you think of that? was paul ryan with hindsight the wrong choice? >> hindsight is 20/20. we can look back on it and see all the reasons why it didn't work. you can see what they were trying to do, they were trying to tap into the tea party enthusiasm on the far right and if you could energize that base and get them excited, maybe that could be -- propel his candidacy forward. the other thing was they actually thought they could have some sort of big idea conversation, bu
and again for specifics. here's running mate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through that process with congress. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers, are going to have fewer deductions and exemptions. >> mitt romney and i based on our experience think the best way to do this is to show the framework, show the outlines of these plans and then to work with congress to do this. >> that's something congress and i will have to work out together. >> the devil's in the details,
ryan, the vice presidential nominee, has actually helped romney's efforts to win the white house or wound up hurting romney's efforts to win the white house. where do you see it? >> well, i've been a big alarmist on the ryan question from the beginning. i thought it was a mistake to choose him. i thought it was a mistake even before choosing him to bolt this campaign to the ryan plan. the romney campaign needs to be about jobs and growth. the decision to make this campaign about medicare and medicaid which is what you do when you adopt the ryan plan much less put ryan on the ticket is a big mistake. i think the campaign is really suffering for it. >> you think democrats down ballot as they say, senatorial candidates, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security. so democrats are along the ryan b
paul ryan, if i heard this correctly, if i heard paul ryan correctly, he said he cannot explain mitt romney's tax policy, at least not the whole thing because, well, it would take too long. we'll play some of that sound for you in a moment. romney and ryan, they are clear about this. that they would cut everyone's tax rate 20%. cut and dry, 20% rate cut. but, to protect the government's revenue stream, they would have to kill certain deductions and certain loopholes, but they won't be specific, won't say which ones those would be. here is congressman ryan, he starts by trumpeting the tax rate cut. >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> but i have to -- >> no. >> but you haven't given me the math. i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go through all the math. >> too long to go through the math, he says. but ryan did go on to hint, didn't promise, but he hinted that a romney administration would look at tax loopholes enjoyed by the wealthy. here's that. >> when you close a tax write-off or tax shelter for a higher income person, more of the

ryan's remarks are part of the deliberate strategy. >> i don't know if it's a smart strategy, but i know it's a realistic strategy. obviously they are down in the polls and they have to do retweaking. i think he is being humble and realistic, and he's admitting there have been mistakes made, and so i think it's a good thing. they do need to eat a little humble pie and admit that things are not all rosy. >> peggy said it was crucial. do you see the debate is crucial? >> the first debate is the only debate that matters at this point. if romney cannot hit obama with what he has to say in the first -- these have not been gaffes by mitt romney. this is mitt romney. this is not the first time he talked about not caring about people less fortunate than him. he said he was not concerned about the very poor. this is not like a misstep. it's a consistent theme with him and it's up to the voters to see if they agree with him. it's not gaffes, it's him. >> how does mitt romney have to appear. does he have to be aggressive? what is the right tone? when we saw him before when he was running for t
instead of trying to pick paul ryan and play no, now we will have a discussion about the issues. >> what about mark coe rub bow, he would have brought something new. you get the sense of paul ryan he is another version of romney and that's not giving him a new era of voters coming in. >> the base didn't need paul ryan because they had balm and that was enough for the republican base to turn out to oust the president from office. >> fascinating stuff. i love the fact in your book there are two categories of hero, weather forecasters and gamble ers. >> what they have in common is they think of things in terms of probability. 20% chance of rain and might be frustrating because they are not giving you an exact answer and if you play poker, i made my living playing poker for a couple of years and you know that your opponent can have a miracle hand that will beat yours. >> and your prediction is storm clouds possible hurricane wiping him out. >> the metaphor drawing to an inside straight is not far off. a one in ten chance and if his polls look like this after the first debate that's where we
granderson and anna navarro. let's take a listen to paul ryan this morning on fox. >> yes, we've had some missteps, but at the end of the day the choice is really clear. we're giving people a really clear choice. we have these pro growth solutions for opportunity and upward mobility in the dynamic economy. you have the president promising four more years of stagnation and dependency. >> paul ryan acknowledges what he calls missteps and admitting mistakes, missteps. is that a deliberate strategy? >> i don't know if it's a smart strategy. but i know it's a realistic strategy. obviously they're down in the polls. i think he's being humble. i think he's being realistic. he's admitting there's been mistakes maitt romney said he didn't make the best articulation when speaking of the 47%. they do need to eat a little humble pie and admit things are not all rosie. we can't deny what the polls are showing. we may be able to argue with the polls a little bit, but things need to pick up. i think paul ryan admitting that this morning is a good thing and refreshing from a politician. >> effectively wh
sides do. this is what paul ryan said on fox yesterday. listen to this. >> president obama's a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> what i love about this particular stage of proceedings, for the first debate, is the way you're both prepared to tell such ghastly lies about each other. paul ryan finally saying all the things about what a great speaker president obama is, how hopeless mitt romney is. the pair of you are playing the same game, lower expectations so far, they just have to breathe to be victorious. >> i think that there's no question that the expectation game is real. everyone plays it. having been involved in a number of presidential debates in the past, there's a certain give and take running up to it. i wouldn't be surprised tomorrow or wednesday, somebody makes a crazy charge or someone in a campaign will do something to try to refocus the run-up to the debate. but i think the fact is the ameri

to the message he had all along instead of trying to pick paul ryan and we are going to have a discussion about the issues. >> marco rubio, you get a sense with paul ryan, that is not giving him a new air of voters coming in. they had bar arebarack obama. >> the book is fascinating. there are two categories. when weather forecasters and gamblers. they aren't giving you an exact answer. you know that sometimes your opponent will catch that card and 52 will make them a miracle and beat yours. and your prediction is storm clouds. the met for is not far off. it is about a one in ten chance and if this polls look like this we are looking at a one in ten chance of a real october surprise. he has a window now but the thing is you lose time and if you want to switch to a sports analogy. if obama leads by a touchdown doesn't mean very much. but we are in the 4th quarter and romney may be giving obama something again. nothing impossible about it but you need to catch a couple of breaks. the one good thing, many predictions fail. good to see you. coming up. celebrity power success and the importance of he
this race. >> what's interesting is, yes, you have sort of the official romney/ryan line that mitt romney can't form a complete sentence and barack obama is cicero and it's going to be very hard. but what christie said is what you're hearing from people behind the scenes. there was a piece with a lot of anonymous quotes from romney aides saying, we need a game changer. i think the good news for romney is if you look back to those primary debates that you were talking about, he did the best in the debates where it seemed like he absolutely had to win. so the south carolina debate, seemed like he was on cruise control, sort of playing a prevent defense against newt gingrich. but then once gingrich won south carolina, he turned it on. the next couple of debates, everybody talked about gingrich master debater and romney won. he does have some debating skills. >> he's good under pressure. and the good part is, he's under pressure. >> here's the historical problem with that, there's very little correlation between debate performance and changing the dynamic of a race. you have to search wide an
